STREB EXTREME ACTION – Time Machine: From Ringside to Extreme Action @ Meany Hall (Seattle – UW campus)

January 20, 2022 @ 8:00 pm

Called the daredevil of modern dance, legendary “PopAction” choreographer Elizabeth Streb makes her dancers fly with “unflinching explorations of physics” (The New York Times). By pushing the boundaries of aesthetics and the human body, her fierce and gravity-defying approach courts danger and thrills the eye.

Returning to Seattle for the first time in 15 years, her company, STREB EXTREME ACTION, revisits its roots with a retrospective of Elizabeth Streb’s classic solos from the ‘70s and ‘80s, experimentations from the ‘90s, and jaw-dropping extreme action opuses on the large-scale “action machines” the company has become known for in the 21st century.
